Shades of Gray


I can’t see beyond these walls

These shades of grey won’t let me go.

And I can’t seem to leave this place

Because it’s all I’ve ever known.

A silence wrapped in crimson tears

Echoes neither there nor here

A madness built on empty fears

A sorrow bourne of lonely years.

Hidden ‘neath the broken veil

A whispering of summer felled

Feelings led astray to linger

Hollowed by their emptiness.

The listless aching of the night

Shadows running from the light

Oh, honey what a crime to be

Living in these shades of gray.
